    Said goodbye to my best friend today

    I got Ally my senior year of college, she was a Cyclone through and through, a golden dog with a cardinal collar. She finally gave in this week to her many ailments. We went to the vet this morning, it was very peacful. We will miss her more than words can describe.

    Hard to say goodbye to a family member, but it is better to have loved and lost than not to have loved.

    Putting down a pet is never an easy thing. You can be proud that you gave them a great life and were there for a peaceful end.

    Sorry for your loss man, that sucks. I can barely even think about going through it again, which I will have to in the next few years, hopefully later than sooner. God bless!

    So sorry for your loss-we put Abbie down July 17 at the age of almost 15 years. Losing a member of your family is painful-lots of great memories. Time helps heal a lot of things...it will get better.

    Such a beautiful dog. So sorry for your loss. We had to put down our golden mix a week before my oldest left for college his freshman year. I know how hard it can be.

    Re: Said goodbye to my best friend today

    Sorry to hear that. Beautiful dog. It's crazy how a dog can get so integrated into the fiber of the family. It speaks volumes about how amazing they are, that even when we know we are going to outlive them, we still feel so sad when they do have to go.

    You're in my thoughts, Craig.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your loss, she was a beautiful girl. I know its always hard to do what you did but just try to find some peace in knowing she no longer suffers and is in a better place waiting to greet you when you two meet again someday.

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls
